What an absolutely incredible trail. If you are in Denali and, like me, unenthused about sitting on a bus for several hours to explore the park - take the bus. Trust me. Take the bus out to Eielson Visitor Center and do this hike. We managed to hit it on a crystal blue sky day and the views were unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. The hike is steep and strenuous, but you won’t even care because with each step the view gets better and better. Go to the very top for the full panoramic viewing experience.
